Question about Garmin GPS
I have an Edge 800, the battery usually lasts for about 4-5 hours, good for most cycle rides for most riders.

I had the same problem with an etrex Vista. I spoke with Garmin, they said that a recently launched WAAS satellite is interferring with some models (he mentioned it is the models with a black and white screen). Garmin tech support said that they're working on a software patch but for the meantime switch WAAS off.
Call Garmin tech support with any questions or to find out about the software patch, 1-800-800-1020

SOURCE: GPS screen went blank
My problem exactly. Unit would start up, acquire satellites, then the
screen would go blank with a single vertical line. Unit would not
respond to buttons or even turn off. Unit works fine after I did the
- w/unit OFF, press and hold QUIT+DOWN+MENU
- press and release the power button, release DOWN, keep holding QUIT+MENU for 5 seconds.
- unit prompts something like: "erase all data;" choose yes.
- you will lose waypoints, etc.
Go to the Garmin support area for details.

There is a generic battery contact problem in the body of the gps, same in 305...this link will show you how to remedy it..MTBGurublog i have done it with my 305 and now do not have the shutdown anymore.... But, before you perform surgery try a full reboot... turn unit off then press mode and power together... unit will ask if you want to delete data..select yes and then manually insert all data again
